There’s a reason we talk about “the reason for the season” during Christmas, and that’s because we somehow manage every year to get distracted by things that are not ultimate things. Traditions are great. Christmas parties are great. Gifts are great. Families are great. Traveling is great. But none of these things have innate holiday goodness. The goodness of these things comes from Jesus himself, and every December we need a fresh reminder of why we celebrate, and why and how he is good and makes these things good.
